Construction on Hamilton's Light Rail Transit is set to begin in 2019 with service starting to the community in 2024! This huge construction project will create jobs in the different phases of the project, including planning, construction, and operation and maintenance.
During construction there will be approximately 3500 jobs created and another 300 jobs to deliver regular operations and maintenance.
With this in mind, Workforce Planning Hamilton has created an easy to use guide that shares information on the occupations that will be required to build and maintain Hamilton's LRT.
The guide highlights the types of jobs available, and the competencies and training necessary to be successful in a career in these fields.
Included are full career guides for 20 of the most in-demand occupations for the LRT, complete with a job description, wage information and training and education information.
